    I know Mars wasn't taking any credit cards for awhile. I think that's been worked out, but I'm not sure. Smoking Pipes hasn't taken Master Card for the last week. I don't know if they're taking it now.

    You try to get any information out of these vendors about this and they act like they're having to deal with a subject too complicated for a blunt instrument to understand.

    Anyone know of problems elsewhere? Does anyone know which credit card companies will not allow purchases of tobacco products?

    I wish the c.c. companies would make the decision to either allow it or not. Nothing more frustrating to me than someone that can't make a decision.

    Hey, credit card companies. Get your crap together!!

    Mastercard has been the culprit. Just for Him had a problem awhile back that they worked out by dropping Mastercard. Before too long it will be a problem for all of them though. That seems to be the way the wind is blowing.

    I haven't had an issue with recent orders either, but did see the notice on the Just for Him website. I have 2 cards, both mine, but one I use for work and the other for personal. The personal one is a Master Card. If they confirmed they were restricting my choice of what I can or can't buy, I would punt them in a blink.
